5 Reasons to Stopover in Singapore

Touted as one of the cleanest cities in the world, Singapore is both an enchanting place of history and nature, and a modern metropolis renowned for its shopping.

In short, Singapore has it all. From the smorgasbord of multicultural flavours, to the array of exciting activities, the best thing about a holiday to Singapore is it really can be whatever you please.

Food Glorious Food

There’s no better way to delve into a destination than through its food, and Singapore’s multicultural makeup shines through in its flavours. The world famous Hawker Centres dish up all kinds of delicious street food, from spicy Malaysian laksa to Indian curry; and be sure to sample local specialties like nasi lemak and the famous Singapore chilli crab. When something more upmarket calls, glitzy precincts such as Marina Bay and Clarke Quay are lined with internationally acclaimed restaurants and bars. After dinner, find yourself a rooftop bar from which to enjoy the nightly light shows over the bay.

Shop til You Drop

From the famous boutiques of Orchard Road to the quirky stores of Ann Siang Hill, Singapore is synonymous with great shopping. Start your search for the perfect piece in Chinatown, home to both excellent flea markets and high class department stores like The OG. For a change of pace, head to Little India, where you’ll find authentic markets and quaint shopping centres popular with the locals. To find that truly unique piece, Haji Lane, lined by independent stores and delicious Middle Eastern eateries, is a memorable experience.

Nature in the City

There’s good reason Singapore is sometimes called the Garden City – nature is plentiful. The most popular place to start is Gardens by the Bay, 101 hectares of land that’s home to over a million plants. See the tallest indoor waterfall in the world, the colourful flower dome and walk 22 metres above the Supertree Grove on the OCBC Skyway. Singapore is also home to the only tropical garden in the world to be World Heritage listed, the Singapore Botanic Gardens. A highlight of the 150 year old garden is the National Orchid Garden. Other places you’ll find a dose of nature include Merlion Park, Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Mount Faber – which affords sweeping views over the city from the top.

A Cultural Affair

Take a trip through Singapore’s layered history by exploring the city’s varied cultural institutions. Starting at the National Museum of Singapore, which dates back to 1849, you’ll gain insight into the city’s beginnings at the ‘We Built A Nation’ exhibition. From here, head to the Asian Civilisations Museum and the Peranakan Museum to explore more of the region’s roots. The National Gallery Singapore, with 8,000 pieces, is the largest public display of contemporary Southeast Asian art in the world, while the ArtScience Museum takes curious minds into the future.

A Dose of Action

Singapore is home to some of the world’s best city attractions. From the Singapore Flyer to the S.E.A Aquarium, the Night Safari to Universal Studios Singapore, there’s one way you can see them all without breaking the bank. The Singapore Pass allows you to choose the attractions you want to see, so you can make the most of your time in town. Jump on the Singapore Cable Car, join a river safari, or get around town on the Singapore7 Hop On, and it all comes with a free city guidebook, so you’ll never miss something important.
